** Deus Ex Machina can be counted, probably due to Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson voicing it.

** Giant flying baby face made of bugs. Egads.

** The film completely ignores how ''Reloaded'' ended with the strong implication that the supposed real world was just another computer program to keep anyone who happened to wake up from the Matrix under control. This also leaves Neo's abilities to use his powers in the real world as a major plot hole.

** Smith LaughingMad after [[spoiler: assimilating the Oracle]] should come off as ridiculous as it looks. But because you really don't expect it of this character, it's effectively chilling.

* MoralEventHorizon: For Smith.

** "Cookies need love like everything does" was even more pants-shittingly evil.

* FanDislikedExplanation: The Oracle explains to Neo that his new powers, like his disabling the Sentinels outside the Matrix, come from connection to the Source. A lot of fans ignore this explanation because not only does it ruin the popular "The real world is another level of the Matrix" idea, but it makes the Source a little too powerful to be believable (like giving Neo psychic premonitions).

** What Smith does to Bane. You're not safe from this guy's assimilation ability even if you're a redpill, and if you're taken over, you become the bastard's gateway into the Real World, meaning '''no one in the Real World is safe from him'''.

** [[spoiler:Trinity]]'s death scene. Note that the main complaint about the scene (its length) is a case of [[RealityIsUnrealistic reality being unrealistic]], since if anything she would have taken a lot ''longer'' to die in the real world, as the rods piercing her body would have plugged her wounds and slowed down her bleeding out. Even with that however, chances are she'd have been in far too much pain to give a long, dull speech.
** NarmCharm: Smith stating that "Cookies need love like everything does". Out of context, having him deliver this line sounds silly and kind of hilarious. ''In'' context, though, it's an IronicEcho to indicate that he just crossed the MoralEventHorizon by [[spoiler:assimilating [[WouldHurtAChild a child]]]], thus making it genuinely creepy.

** The film doesn't follow up on any of the foreshadowing ''Reloaded'' had about the Merovingian; He only serves as a minor antagonist who is quickly dealt with, and Persephone is effectively DemotedToExtra.

* {{Padding}}: The battle of Zion, while cool looking, does not matter at all since Neo is the only one who can stop the fighting and he's somewhere else. One could argue the battle is necessary to show just how hopeless a fight it is for the humans and reinforce Neo's importance, and show that everyone isn't just sitting on their thumbs waiting for Neo, but that could have been done with a couple of shots, not over a half an hour of pointless subplots.
